In the midst of multiple vehicle recalls that were initiated during this year, BMW has recently announced the recall of some of its brand new 2014 vehicles. Florida residents who are the owners of a BMW i8 may have reason to be concerned. The manufacturer recently informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of a manufacturing error that may cause severe personal injury.
BMW of North America, LLC, announced the recall of 223 of its i8 vehicles that came off the production line between May 16 and Sept. 16 of this 2014. The manufacturer's fault, which may cause severe personal injury or even death, was reported to be the inadequate welding of a bolt on the fuel tank. The bolt secures a ground cable that runs between the chassis and the vehicle's fuel tank. However, the particular bolts were inadequately welded on the fuel tanks of only the 223 vehicles that are affected, and may not affect all.
